[MV] Restoring a Jerry Can?

I am cross-posting this to Jeep-L and the Military Vehicle list to see if
anyone has any good suggestions.

The University of Notre Dame Maintinance Department had its annual sale
this weekend and I picked up some great stuff. I purchased sever "D"
Shackles and found a 1951 Jerry Can. To really make you envious, each
item was only $1.

The Jerry can reads on the bottom:


Its in great shape on the outside but has a little rust on the inside. I
want to restore it and use it. Is there a method for getting rust out of
the inside? Would I have to coat the inside lining with something to use
it or can I simply use it once I get the rust out?

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
